Home Alone

With her sister at Big Hill holiday camp , this week it has been just lil’ June and us. And she has had time to ask us all those questions she has always wanted to ask.

“Mum , water has which vitamin?”

Um , water has a whole lot of vitamins baby…..i mean er…minerals, that are good for us.

“And showering every day has what vitamin?” ūüėÄ

“Showering every day is good for the skin and it makes it easier for us to get Vitamin D from the sun” , I said feeling quite proud of the theory I had just invented. When you are a parent, you have to be creative.

When we dropped her sister to camp on Monday , she wanted to remain too.

However it would not have been possible as Big Hill holiday camps only admit 7 to 14 year olds. But she had a great time for the next hour or so , sampling the facilities available for the Big hill campers.

Daddy's girl

I can tell she misses her sister but she is also happy hogging our undivided attention. At night she comes with a book and either daddy or I read her a story , after which she says her bedtime¬†prayers¬†, which include the phrase , “Oh , God thank you for this NEW day.”

She’s so sweet , I can’t even correct her. :)

Today we are going to pick Bunny up from camp , and tonight parents are allowed to camp with the option of setting up a tent at the Big Hill camping grounds, if they want. Now, I’d be so excited about sleeping in a tent , had I not grown up in the rural areas.

    I doubt loving camping has anything to do with where you grew up. I can’t stand it even after growing up the city, I just don’t get that “exciting” aspect of it.

    Great blog. Been watching from a far without commenting….very entertaining¬†

      Thanks Mkenya! I always imagine peeps who grew up in posh places crave the experience of lighting fires and cooking with firewood.

      We chose another option – some hotel.

      Something about smelly mosquito repellents and the (real or imagined) risk of poisonous snakes slithering into your abode in the dead of the night kills all the “excitement” of of sleeping in a tent.

    Great blog and these kids ask very difficult questions. That theory about how showering every day is good for the skin and it makes it easier for us to get Vitamin D from the sun is very hilarious. Motherhood must be such a joy.
